* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles,'' Harry has one of these, literally, and TheFairFolk are a lot scarier than in the Disneyverse. The Leanansidhe protects him from dangers of Nevernever... in [[BlueAndOrangeMorality her own way]]. Due to a MagicallyBindingContract, he belongs to her, and she sometimes tries to collect. What happens if she wins? [[spoiler: You know those hunting dogs that herald her arrival? ''They weren't dogs originally.'']] However, lately, she's proven to be very good (if ''scary'') to have as an ally.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles,'' Harry has one of these, literally, and TheFairFolk are a lot scarier than in the Disneyverse. The Leanansidhe protects him kick is that Cinderella's fairy godmother would have been with the more Disney-esque Summer Court, while the Leanansidhe, Harry's godmother, comes from dangers of Nevernever... in the [[EvilCounterpart Winter Court]]. While scary, dangerous, and insane by most reasonable standards, Lea truly does want to protect Harry and wants the best for him...[[BlueAndOrangeMorality in her own way]]. Due to a MagicallyBindingContract, he belongs to her, and she sometimes tries to collect. What happens if she wins? [[spoiler: You know those hunting dogs that herald her arrival? ''They weren't dogs originally.'']] However, lately, she's proven to be very good (if ''scary'') to have as an ally.

* Deconstructed in ''Literature/EllaEnchanted'', with a godmother who's a fairy but is inconspicuous about it, and another fairy who has a bad habit of going to the christenings of complete strangers and giving them magical gifts they don't want or need. In the original book, however, Maddie is Ella's actual FairyGodmother, and she plays this straight, being a CoolOldLady; Lucinda just happened to be at the baptism.

* NorseMythology: ''Literature/ProseEdda'' relates that besides the three chief norns Urd, Skuld and Verdandi, "there are yet more norns, namely those who come to every man when he is born, to shape his life". Obviously these norns who visit newborn children to "shape their lives" are functionally the same beings as the fairies dispensing blessings (or curses) on newborn children in many fairy tales.
